    "Does not enforce IDEF0 rules or hierarchy"

    July 15, 2012  |   By ProcessBill

    Version: Edraw Max 6.5

    Pros

    Reasonably simple and quite couourful.

    Cons

    Just as in Viso, EDraw will allow you to draw IDEF0 diagrams, but only as drawings. EDraw does not create an IDEF0 model so it is left the the user to enforce the rules and implement the hierarcy.

    Summary

    Not a useful tool for IDEF0 modeling.

    "Good Diagram Software for Students and Professionals"

    May 15, 2012  |   By bill811

    Version: Edraw Max 6.3

    Pros

    Edraw MAX is a diagram and presentation program designed for students and professionals alike. With it users can create any type of drawings such as flowcharts, network diagrams, presentations, building plans, fashion designs, workflows, program structures, UML, web design, electrical engineering, database diagrams, and more.

    It has a library of pre-made diagrams and over 4600 symbols, according to EdrawSoft. The user interface is really friendly, unlike Visio's or DIA's, and the shapes are fully customizable. Additionally, it integrates with other MS Office applications like Word or Excel.

    Cons

    This software is much more friendly, has a lot of pre-designed templates

    "Useless if you actually want to use what it creates."

    April 22, 2012  |   By Steve_Download

    Version: Edraw Max 6.3

    Pros

    Fairly straight forward and intuitive on creation.

    Cons

    Annoying: When you are editing and have text written on a link there is sometimes an error where it will, for no apparent reason, show text from another link also. Only appears in the editor so you can save and close the file and then reopen it to make your link text appear normal.

    Useless: There are several problems with exporting.
    1)Text has strange spacing issues, most noticeable with the lowercase w, that make words appear to have additional spaces in them. "Stairway" would look like "S ta ir w ay" for example.
    2)If the program decides your export file will be too big it will shrink the image to what it considers useful WITHOUT NOTICE. If it reaches the end of it's ability to shrink then it will give a blank error message. I spent quite a bit of time thinking all the sizing options were useless because I kept ending up with the same image. If you are making something that is going to be larger than a few standard pieces of paper then the size you want becomes irrelevant.

    Summary

    If for some reason file size is relevant then it would have been nice to have the option to divide the image into several files. At least a pop-up saying something like "Your image is too large. We cannot cope with what you are dealing with. As such we are shrinking this to XX% of its original size." Such a message would have saved me many hours wasted trying to get this to fit my needs.

    With those cons it is actually easier and faster to use this program to generate some shapes for you and then use them in MS Paint to make your chart there. If these were problems in version 6.3 I would have to see what sort of issues were in earlier versions.

    Defiantly not worth the price that they are asking. But since they wasted my time I feel I need to lower some of their profit. If you intend to purchase this (I cannot imagine why you would as you will be spending more time fixing it's product then you did creating it.) then make sure you wait till the end of the trial period as the program will prompt a discounted price as you near the limit.

    "Slow Visio replica"

    September 17, 2010  |   By mwier

    Version: Edraw Max 5.3

    Pros

    The program looks and behaves like Visio.
    It has built-in support for tables & PDF export.

    Cons

    The program runs much slower than Visio 2007.
    I didn?t found a way to make a directed connection between two shapes ? not just a connection between two points from them.
    The program failed to open correctly not very complex Visio file (vdx).

    Summary

    The program runs slowly. In particular:
    Page scrolling is slow.
    Shape rotation, resizing and dragging are slow.
    Selecting objects is slow.

    Visio 2007 performs the above actions much faster.

    The program can export diagrams into PDF files, but the exported shapes are raster graphics. Because of this the diagrams may not look crisp when they are printed from an exported PDF file.

    I didn?t found a way to place an arrow in the middle of a connector (there is a ?mid-arrow? shape ? a line segment, whose end arrow points the middle, but it is not a connector).

    I didn?t found a way to re-layout shapes ? a Visio feature which can automatically rearrange complex diagrams and in some cases make them more visually comprehensible.

    I didn?t found a motivating reason to switch from Visio to Edraw Max, because the latter lacks originality and performs worse than Visio.

    "Almost as good as Visio at 1/2 the price."

    May 6, 2009  |   By DANDYV

    Version: Edraw Max 4.6

    Pros

    Results are very nice, with clean lines and good-looking images.

    Cons

    Not as easy to find how to do some things. Could be more intuitive.

    Summary

    An excellent product at a fair price. I don't use a lot of charts, and could not justify the price for Visio (which I used in the past). E-Draw gives great results and has many new features.

    "It's like MS Visio, but cheaper!"

    December 8, 2008  |   By DarkAngel1004

    Version: Edraw Max 4.1

    Pros

    Nice looking, same outfit, doesn't need so much memory as Visio. I can call it almost perfect.

    Cons

    Isn't something.

    Summary

    And I don't think it's robbered from http://conceptdraw.com
    I don't know a page that runs as slow as this one.
